Libya

It's safe to say that the situation in Libya has really gotten out of hand. Gaddafi has shown he is not afraid to kill his own people to remain in power, hiring mercenaries and using tanks on civilians. I really hope he is brought to justice.

The thing that has been really bothering me a lot though is the Obama administration dragging their feet about this whole thing. The "wait and see" attitude does not serve well in a situation like this where countless lives could have been saved had he acted sooner. Just today, the US along with the UN finally declared a "no-fly zone" over Libya prompting them to declare a "cease-fire". US warships are moving into the Mediterranean to monitor the situation.
